House subcommittee proposes budget cuts to MSHA and OSHA

The Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) would receive modest budget cuts in 2019 following a draft funding bill proposed by the House Appropriations Committee’s Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies Subcommittee.

According to a report by Safety+Health:” The bill proposes $367.6 million for MSHA, about $6.2 million less than in FY 2018 and more than $8.3 million less than the administration’s budget request.”

Additionally, the draft appropriations bill allocates $545.3m for OSHA which is a decrease of around $7.5m from FY 2018 and $3.8m less than the proposed funding by the Trump administration.

The report says the subcommittee rejected the administration’s proposed cut to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health’s budget.

“The administration had allotted $255 million for the agency for FY 2019, a decrease from $335.2m in the previous fiscal year”, the report adds.

This bill was approved in a subcommittee markup on 15 June. The Senate was expected to issue its appropriations during the week beginning 25 June.
